Mercer Medical Moment: Fun in the Sun

By Wesley Durrence Mercer University School of
Third-year MD
2020 has reminded us that there are certain health concerns we just can't see coming (COVID-19). Fortunately, as summertime approaches, there are several things we can do to avoid common heat-related illnesses while having fun in the sun. This includes efforts to aid in the prevention of skin cancer, heat stroke and dehydration.
Skin Cancer
Ultraviolet (UV) radiation is a form of radiation emitted by the sun and artificial sources such as tanning beds. With excessive exposure over time, UV radiation can lead to sunburn, premature aging and, ultimately, skin cancer. During summer months when time spent in the sun is increased, lifetime UV exposure and skin cancer risks can also increase. Fortunately, there are many things that can be done to lower UV exposure and lower the risk of skin cancer while still enjoying summer activities. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends the following to protect from UV radiation: Stay in the shade, especially during midday hours
(10AM - 4PM) when UV exposure is greatest. Wear clothing that covers your arms and legs. Wear a wide-brim hat to shade your face, head, ears and

Wear sunglasses that block UVA and UVB rays (types of UV rays).
Use sunscreen that is rated SPF 15 or higher. Apply 15-30 minutes before sun exposure. Be sure to re-apply every 2 hours during sun exposure, after time in the water, and with excessive perspiration.
Heat Stroke
Heat stroke is the most severe form of heat illness. In heat stroke, the body loses its ability to properly cool itself. Heat stroke is a life-threatening medical emergency that requires immediate treatment. Signs of heat stroke include: High body temperature (103 F or higher) Hot, red, dry, or profusely sweating skin Fast, strong pulse Headache Dizziness Nausea Confusion Seizure Loss of consciousness.
If heat stroke is suspected, call 911 immediately, move the person to a cooler place, and apply cool cloths or a cool bath. Do not give the person anything to drink, especially when they are not fully awake, alert and acting normally.
One of the most important ways to prevent heat-related illness, including heat stroke, is hydration (drinking enough fluids). The CDC has several recommendations regarding hydration: Hydrate before going outside or working. If you are
dehydrated when working, you may not be able to drink

enough to catch up with the body's water needs. Drink before you feel thirsty. By the time you feel
thirsty, you're already behind in fluid replacement. When working in the heat, drink 1 cup (8 oz) of water
every 15-20 minutes. Do not drink more than 48 oz of water per hour. This
could make the concentration of salt in the blood too low. Continue rehydrating after working, as most people need several hours to drink enough fluids to replace fluids lost through sweat. Avoid alcohol and energy drinks, as they can cause dehydration. Eating regular meals with adequate water intake is enough to maintain water and electrolyte balance. For prolonged sweating lasting several hours, sports drinks with balanced electrolytes are another option to replace salt lost in sweat.
An Ounce of Prevention
To help protect yourself and your family from heat-related illness, the CDC recommends everyone take the following steps: Stay in an air-conditioned indoor location as much as
possible Wear loose, lightweight, light-colored clothing and
sunscreen Take cool showers or baths to cool down Never leave children or pets in cars.

Cook Georgia Grown:
Georgia Grown Elote (Mexican Street Corn)

This recipe lets Georgia's summer sweet corn shine! Mexican Street Corn, or Elote, is a grilled treat slathered with mayonnaise to create a burnished, caramelized exterior, and it can be topped with cotija cheese or queso fresco, chili powder, and lime juice, but feel free to add your favorite hot sauce or substitute feta or parmesan for the Mexican cheese. Make sure to leave the woody stem on the corn when you're ready to shuck so you can make use of the built in "handle." To step it up a notch, we've included a recipe for cilantrolime crema to top it all off with no blender required, but it is totally optional.
Ingredients 4 whole ears yellow corn, unshucked 2 tsps mayonnaise 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper 1/4 tsp smoked paprika 1/4 tsp chili powder 1/4 tsp salt
For the garnish 2 Tbsps loosely packed cilantro
leaves 1/2 lime, cut into 4 wedges 1/3 cup crumbled queso fresco

For the cilantro-lime crema (optional): 3 Tbsps sour cream 3 Tbsps mayonnaise 2 tsps fresh-squeezed lime juice 1-2 Tbsps finely chopped cilantro Directions Combine cayenne, chili powder, smoked paprika and salt in a small bowl and set aside.
To make the cilantro-lime crema (optional):
In a small bowl, stir together sour cream, mayonnaise and lime juice. Season with salt and pepper. Hold a sharp chef's knife horizontally with your index finger pressing down on the flat part of the blade and use it to crush cilantro by dragging the knife toward you until the juices are released. Continue to chop and crush until it becomes a paste. Add crushed cilantro to sour cream and mayonnaise mixture and set aside. Prepare a charcoal grill to a medium high heat or preheat a gas grill. Shuck corn, leaving the tough woody stem to serve as a "handle" on the

end of each ear. Brush each ear with mayonnaise, including the "handle" and season with salt. Grill corn, turning frequently, about 10 minutes until fully cooked and charred in places. Remove corn from heat and season each ear with chili powder mixture,

leaving some to sprinkle over at the end if desired. Transfer corn to a serving dish. Spoon crema, if using, evenly over the top of each ear. Sprinkle with crumbled queso fresco, sprinkle with more chili powder mixture, garnish with cilantro leaves, and serve with lime wedges.

My Tractor Story: Poppin' Johnnies in the East Texas cotton fields
Editor's Note: This story mentions "poisoning" cotton, which refers to the use of a chemical pesticide in open fields to control insects in certain crops.

By Jim Griffith Colleyville, Texas

There's not much to tell except as a young kid growing up in east Texas in the late 1940s and '50s I spent many an hour on the back of the old Popping Johnnies: An H model, a B model, an A model, '50 and '60 models, if I remember right.
My dad was one of the last cotton farmers in Panola County in east Texas. We finally had to quit because we had to poison too many times about 30 to 35, best I remember. I did it on a John Deere A with an 8-row duster hung behind it and I, as a kid, did most of the poisoning work with nothing but a bandana around my face, putting out what I recall was maybe Malathion. I ran that duster in those little creek bottoms after getting in from school
The first Johnnies I recall had a cranking flywheel that we had to open cocks on the side to make it easier to start. They started, I think, on kerosene then switched over to gasoline; maybe the opposite but I know there were two tanks. That was before butane came along and we started converting to butane systems on all the tractors.
We used the tractor's flywheel to pull a big long belt to turn our ribbon cane squeezer also. That was a lot better than the mules going around and around. I used the Popping Johnny to pack silage into trench silos filled with sorghum we cut to feed steers in winter. I learned as a youngster how to maneuver the tractor's hand clutch.
Old silos were dug trenches about 12 feet or so wide and 40 to 70 feet long. We would start hauling, cutting and putting sorghum in the silo. The only way we had to pack the silage was with the heaviest tractor we had, which was our Model A John Deere. I was the packer driver. As you can imagine, the silage would build up as you packed it. It always had a steep sloped end you had to roll up as you packed. Dumb as I was; dumb, dumb Dad never knew of course I learned to roll the John Deere back down in the silo then walk it up the steep slope, with the front wheels off the ground and me hanging over off the seat just in case it flipped back over.
That old hand clutch let you maneuver it like that. It never dawned on me that Dad had no insurance and could not have paid to get the tractor dam-

age fixed because I was just a 15-year-old running a tractor. I never thought about the risk I was taking. I could plow the straightest cotton rows of any of our hands with that tractor.
It even got to the point we would set our cultivators so they would throw a ridge on every other row. That ridge would be right between the rows. The front wheels, tricycle type, would straddle that ridge and you could literally go from one end of the cotton row to the other and never have to touch the steering wheel. It's hard to imagine but we did it.
That old Popping Johnny was great old tractor. Lot of other memories. I am 79 years young and still love to drive tractors and talk about the old ones!

Georgie's Drive Thru Jacksonville
Hello! I'm Georgie, the Georgia Grown mascot. I travel the state of Georgia promoting our No. 1 industry, agriculture! Have you ever heard the expression, "Good things come in small packages?" Well, that's especially true in Telfair County, where the World's Largest Largemouth Bass was caught! In 1932, a man named George Perry was fishing in an "ox bow," which is a lake that is created when a river channel straightens itself out. The ox bow that Mr. Perry was fishing in that day is called Montgomery Lake, situated on GA Hwy 117 between Lumber City and Jacksonville. He was fishing with a friend to put food on the table at home. Back in those days, the Great Depression had the whole country worried about feeding their families. Ol' George thought he'd snagged a log when he hooked that big bass with his Creek Chub Fantail Shiner. The two anglers knew they had something special, so they took the fish to Helena to get it weighed. Weighing in at 22 lbs., 4 oz., it beat the old record by more than two pounds! After the results were certified, the world-record bass was cooked and eaten, instead of stuffed and mounted.

FDA warns caution when using hand sanitizers against COVID-19

EPA approves the first disinfectants proven to kill coronavirus

By Amy Carter
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is warning consumers to be cautious in their use of hand sanitizers as protection against the SARS-CoV-2 virus that causes COVID-19,. The agency is seeing a sharp increase in hand sanitizer products labeled to contain ethanol (also known as ethyl alcohol) but that have tested positive for methanol. Methanol, or wood alcohol, is toxic when absorbed through the skin and can be life-threatening when ingested.
Consumers exposed to hand sanitizer containing methanol and experiencing symptoms should seek immediate treatment for reversal of toxic effects. Substantial methanol exposure can result in nausea, vomiting, headache, blurred vision, permanent blindness, seizures, coma, permanent damage to the nervous system or death.
"Although persons using these products on their hands are at risk for methanol poisoning, young children who accidentally ingest these products and adolescents and adults who drink these products as an alcohol (ethanol) substitute, are most at risk," according to FDA.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention advocates proper handwashing in defense against COVID-19. You should wash often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after using the restroom, before eating, and after coughing, sneezing or blowing your nose. If soap and water are not readily available, the CDC recommends

using an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60 percent ethanol (ethyl alcohol).
For the disinfection of surfaces, the EPA recently approved two products found to kill the novel coronavirus: Lysol Disinfectant Spray (EPA Reg No. 777-99) and Lysol Disinfectant Max Cover Mist (EPA Reg No. 777-127).
Before pesticide products can legally make claims that they can kill a pathogen such as SARS-CoV-2, the claim must be authorized by EPA based on a review of data. Because novel viruses are typically not immediately available for laboratory testing, EPA established industry guidance for Emerging Viral Pathogens (found online at https:// ).
In January 2020, the agency activated the guidance for the first time in response to the SARS-CoV-2 public health emergency. The guidance allows product manufacturers to provide EPA with data, even in advance of an outbreak, that shows their products are effective against harder-tokill viruses than SARS-CoV-2. Through this guidance and the agency's review of newly registered products, EPA's list of products that meet the agency's criteria for use against SARS-CoV-2 (known as List N) includes more than 420 products. In many cases, the agency was able to approve claims in as little as 14 days.
Recently, EPA updated the entries for two products on List N to show they have now been tested directly against SARS-CoV-2. These are the first List N products for which

When choosing and using a disinfectant, check that your product is EPA-approved. Find the EPA registration number on the product. Then, check to see if it is on EPA's list of approved disinfectants at: Then:
1) Read the directions. Follow the product's directions. Check "use sites" and "surface types" to see where you can use the product. Read the "precautionary statements."
2) Pre-clean the surface. Make sure to wash the surface with soap and water if the directions mention pre-cleaning or if the surface is visibly dirty.
3) Follow the contact time. You can find the contact time in the directions. The surface should remain wet the whole time to ensure the product is effective.
4) Wear gloves and wash your hands. For disposable gloves, discard them after each cleaning. For reusable gloves, dedicate a pair to disinfecting COVID-19. Wash your hands often after removing gloves.
5) Lock it up. Keep lids tightly closed and store out of reach of children.

the agency has reviewed laboratory testing data and approved label claims against SARS-CoV-2. EPA expects to approve such claims for additional List N products. All products on EPA's List N meet the agency's criteria for effectiveness against SARS-CoV-2.
The FDA lists these areas of concern about hand sanitizers:
While hand sanitizers with possible methanol contamination are more life-threatening than those that are not contaminated, FDA urges consumers not to drink any of these products.
Certain hand sanitizers may not contain a sufficient amount of ethyl alcohol or isopropyl alcohol.
Hand sanitizers that are sold or offered for sale with false or misleading, unproven claims that they can prevent the spread of viruses such as COVID-19, including claims that they can provide prolonged protection (e.g., for up to 24 hours).
Products that are fraudulently marketed as "FDA-approved" since there are no hand sanitizers approved by FDA.
Products packaged to appear as drinks, candy or liquor bottles, as well as products marketed as drinks or cocktails because their appearance could result in accidental ingestion or encouraged ingestion. Children are particularly at risk with these products since ingesting only a small amount of hand sanitizer may be lethal in a young child.

Great Georgia Pollinator Census returns in August

Participate solo, with family or classroom

By Josh Paine
Students and families are encouraged to participate in the second annual Great Georgia Pollinator Census on August 21-22 coordinated by University of Georgia Cooperative Extension.
About 4,500 participants documented more than 131,000 insect sightings as part of the inaugural census in 2019, and more than 100 events related to the project took place around the state.
This year's count may look a bit different with social distancing recommendations in place, but organizers are encouraging participants to plan on counting pollinators at home, whether solo or with their families.
Census takers are asked to count pollinators on a favorite pollinator plant with abundant insect activity for 15 minutes each day using the provided observation sheet.
"The goals of the project are to gather data on pollinator insect populations, foster pollinator habitats and increase entomological literacy about these insects," said Becky Griffin, UGA Extension school garden and pollinator census coordinator. She modeled the program on the Great Backyard Bird

Count, a citizen science program run by Cornell University that asks people to count the birds they see in their backyard.
If you can't tell a honeybee from a bumble bee, don't worry. An Insect Counting and Identification Guide gives detailed instructions on counting and photo examples for classification, which is helpful, since there are more than 500 bee species reported in the state. Insects are categorized into one of eight categories during the observation period:
Bumble bees Carpenter bees Small bees Honeybees Wasps Flies Butterflies and moths Other insects Those interested in counting should visit to sign up and subscribe to the monthly newsletter about pollinator gardening and insect identification. The project's Facebook group, Georgia Pollinator Census, has grown to nearly 1,500 members and includes many educational resources including videos and files available for

teachers to use in the classroom like "Honeybee Roles." "Schools doing STEAM projects are also welcome, and
the census can be administered remotely for teachers whose schools are meeting virtually," explained Griffin. An educator page, including lesson plans for download, is also available at
